Lately I have been getting error -4 every time I try to sideload an Android app converted by myself. I think this has been since 2.0.1. Non android apps still work (e.g. the PSX emulator), Android apps converted by others (e.g. from good ereader blog) work, but those I convert myself don't. I really don't know what is going on, does anyone know what this error means? It worked fine before the update.
Maybe I need to delete my signing keys and get new ones...Don't really want to do that though, if I ever need to update my app that is in App World I couldn't do it with different keys...
Well I'll maybe try that anyway if no one has any other suggestions. I don't like not being able to convert whatever APK I like.
Tried getting new keys, that didn't help. Maybe there is something wrong with my Android SDK or something. I don't have the time to mess with that stuff at the moment though. For now I guess I'll just post requests in Koz's thread for any apps I want

-4 is just an example of an app being incompatible with the Playbook. From my experience 2/10 apps requested actually run on the playbook and a smaller percentage actually work as intended.Need Playbook Apps? Check out our store with nothing but BAR Files with over 1400 Apps and Growing everyday! For Apps click HERE We also just created a NEW GAMES SECTION! We now have 7 new game categories!

Check it out http://apps.goodereader.com/apk-2-bar/
Oh, so it's just that these apps happen to be ones that won't work? Well that sucks, but thanks anyway. At least it means I'm (probably) not doing anything wrong.

I have found that some apps give that error even when the app was successfully installed and run in the past. I have found other folks state that they had success yet it failed on my PB, and vice versa. I think the problem is with the Android Runtime and/or stuff left over from younger version/different install of the app or conflicts with other apps. I find it is always good to reboot twice after an uninstall of Android apps.
I wish that there was a way to wipe selectively: Native apps only; Android apps only; all without affecting the data files in [shared]. I have too much time invested in my PB to do a full wipe, so I live with it.
